This week (2-11-19) we will be focusing on:
Know and use various text features (e.g., headings, tables of contents, glossaries, electronic menus, icons) to locate key facts or information in a text.
Write information/explanatory texts in which students supply some facts about a topic and some sense of closure.
Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.
Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects in darkness can be seen only when illuminated.
Construct simple maps of the classroom to demonstrate aerial perspective.
Give examples of places that have absolute locations (e.g., home address, school address).
